I really liked Alex Gordon, was a very solid player for us a couple of seasons until we switched defensive systems and he wasn’t as suited to our style of play…Fabini too was a success story, so Cincinnati has been a happy hunting ground.

Ohio State is a bit hit and miss but those FSU guys all worked out to a certain extent
